{ July's Happiness Giveaway Challenge }

**Note: this post will remain at the top until the contest deadline. Please scroll down for new posts. **

Yup, it's that time again. Well I have finally decide on the Challenge. I don't have a sample yet, but once I have mine done I will add it into this post for you to see. This one is a Challenge of my own. Your challenge is to use this SCS Sketch:

This card is to be for a Man in your life! Yup...a man card with this sketch! This is something that I always struggle with. I am no good at making masculine cards...quite frankly I suck at it! So you are helping me out by giving me some ideas for the cards I have to make this year.

Deadline: July 31st @ 9:00pm MST

Please leave a comment on this post with a link to your card either on your blog or SCS gallery. If you have neither a blog or gallery please email me your entry here. This will be one entry only. The winner will be chosen at random from all entries.

Now for the winner? I have not decided fully on a prize. I think this one will be a mixture of things...lets just say for now that it will be a surprise! ;0) teehee...okay lets just say...ribbons, Primas, brads, DP and possibly a new Cuttlebug die or embossing folder perhaps??? teehee ;0) but with a masculine theme??? Can I do that with Primas? ;0)

Now go create your masterpiece!!

Here's my card. It actually wasn't that hard. I really liked this sketch!

Anonymous said...

I made a card and then realized it's not a man card.....back to the drawing board!

Lori said...

This was a great challenge! I had a hard time keeping the feminine touches out completely but I don't think it veers out of the masculine world! You can see the card at my blog:

Hi Tracy,

Just under the wire as per usual! Here's my entry for your July card challenge with a whole day to spare! lol :)

Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with for ideas. This was fun but does everyone else have as hard a time as I do with masculine themed cards?
